Monster Monday-December 28, 2015


Troll Wizard

page from Songs of Fablewood

Its the last Monster Monday of the year. It's been 3 years of Monster Monday and 2 consecutive year of not missing a Monday post. Since its the year end, I decided to share a page from my book Songs of Fablewood. This year has been a huge leap forward in my style, work, and process. And I look forward to the continued growth as an artist. Today is the last Monster Monday ever but not the end of Monday posts. Next Monday starts the next chapter.

Monster Monday- March 16, 2015

boggart_winter This weeks monster is a boggart. In a story I'm developing (and have a few chapters written) that takes place in a fey realm during the winter season. There are many creatures who live there including the boggarts, known minions of the Winter Giant. There weapons are made of stone, jagged and raw. They wear scarves of fur and mail of river stones. Most of the clothing they wear is stollen from oblivious humans who live to close to the forest. In hordes they bulldoze through the villages of the Fey, eating all their food and taking valuables back to their king.

goblin_wiz_hat Last week my new brush pen arrived in the mail. Lately I've been looking for a brush pen to take with me on the go since carrying a bottle of ink and brush isn't convenient. I ordered a Kuretake Brush Pen and like it more then the Pentel Pocket Brush. It glides much smoother and the brush is stronger. As a test I inked this portrait of a goblin wizard for Goblin Guild.

mandrake_root_watercolor For this week's Monster Monday, I created a little Mandrake Root drawing. A while back I bought a brush pen that I wanted to try out and sketched out the character above. After inking it I scanned the drawing in to experiment with watercolor washes digitally. The next step will be to use actual watercolor confidently to lay in washes over my drawings and not freak out if I screw up a piece. There are bound to be more mistakes then successes, that's just the way art is.
